Back again.

Alright, I'm back.

I've attempted to do something about my anxiety and depression, and while it's definitely not gone, I do think I'm doing a little better. I started actively trying to do better Saturday I think. I'm still having trouble craving naughty things. It's so easy to grab a cookie for myself when giving some to the kids, but I've not. Yesterday I felt a bit like crap. Melanie thinks it was sugar withdrawals. May have been. I wasn't eating THAT much sugar before, but might have been enough to give me a headache and make me feel blah.
Sunday and Monday we went to the gym. I did 35 minutes of cardio Sunday, and 30 Monday. Plus weights. It feels good to be back there. We're going again tonight which will be good.

I'm having a bit of trouble balancing everything right now as well. My university work load seems more, and I'm not not one to plop on a bike with a book in front of me. It doesn't stay anyways. I tried once. I'm still feeling a bit overwhelmed with that and school and the kids and housework etc, but I'm hoping the exercise will help alleviate some of the stress I'm feeling around all that.

It was this time two years ago I really started my weight loss the first time, and I did so well. I'm hoping that I can be as successful this time as well. After jumping on the scale I see I did actually gain 10 kg (22 lbs) since December. That needs to come off. Would be happy with another 10 as well.

And just to add... my butt hurts from sitting on the bike! Oooww.


  1. Awesome Sa! That's that's half the battle is getting back on it. I don't have kids, but I do have a hubby, full time job and classes at night too, so I definitely can empathize with you on the balancing act. Keep up the good fight and soon it won't feel like fighting anymore. We're here for you!! And I think Mel is onto something about the sugar withdrawals...it doesn't take much (coming from a serious sugar addict!)

  2. Thanks Hope!
    The kids are Mel's but seeing as I live with them all, I do watch them a lot and even when everyone's home, they still come to me for some things.
    Anyways, thanks for the encouragement!
